Visualization has long been a tactic in sports psychology. It has been proven that if one visualizes the accomplishment of a goal, it’s achievement is probable. I often tell clients that if they visualize themselves fit and healthy, they are more likely to take the steps to be that way.
This same approach can be used daily to increase intake of fruits and vegetables. Eating the 9-13 servings of plants each day which are required for optimal health may be a challenge. A study profiled in Science Daily found that if you want to improve the way you eat, the best way to do so is to both make an action plan and visualize yourself carrying it out, according to researchers.
